I did not find a match for this topic, so I just share a curious question that I have.

My company has Adobe Stock subscription and I download several photos each month. I have discovered that when looking at the meta info of those files, some have 5 stars, some have 4, some have none.

How is this rating applied to a file? By the person who reviews the images or based on some automated function?

It's part of the metadata added by the photographer of the image.

Yes, you can add it just by clicking on the star rating under the image in Bridge. I often do it by accident and dont always bother to undo it. You can also use it to arrange images when working on them (you can sort by rating). Doesnt necessary correspond to the quality of the image.

I am surprised that Adobe doesn't remove that type of metadata from the file.

Makes me want to mark everything 5 stars before I upload?

Actually i only upload 5 stars images. Its part of my workflow.
1 star - selected, 2 stars - keyworded, 3 stars- developed, 4 stars - photoshopped, 5 stars - Jpeg ready to upload.
Its useful in LR to select the wright images.

I can't think of any reason to do this from a stock contributor perspective.

If a buyer sees that and doesn't know that I'm the one who gave it five stars?  ;D

No I won't and I don't use Bridge, I use BreezeBrowser Pro, so the rating stars don't exist that I know of.

So all of yours should be showing 5 stars then?

Why is that Mat?
Don't the stars come from the contributor but from the reviewer or don't you see the benefit from it when it comes from the contributor itself? I could imagine that a client that bought the photo could think they bought a very good quality photo if they think it comes from Adobe, right? That was kind of the question of the OP as well, I guess.

I was just joking because if a buyer doesn't know the source,  I'd look better. It doesn't matter, I don't use bridge and I don't have time to play stupid tricks and games, trying to fool people.  ;D

Just that it's odd that Adobe would leave it in, as wds posted. At the same time, it's odd that Adobe doesn't read actual descriptions and I believe is the only site to place the Title as the default data, instead of the IPTC standard Description field. So we have to dance around that oddity as well.

ps if you leave the title blank AS reads the Description, but some other sites, DT will ask you for the Title. SS totally ignores Title. I'd have to make a project and go through the top sites to figure out which ones do and don't use Title. Which is easier? Leave it blank and add when requested, or put it in and then have to cut it out for Adobe uploads?
